‘Do I Have to Cry to Say Goodbye?’ is Kevin’s first book. here is the description –
DO I HAVE TO CRY TO SAY GOODBYE? BIRTH DEATH AND INSPIRATION – A MAN’S JOURNEY
Losing a child is the hardest thing any parent will have to experience. Writing about that experience is even harder. Kevin McNamara has ripped open his chest cavity, gone inside and pulled out his heart and laid it bare on the table.
His fascinating journey from his own birth to his daughters birth and her death at 5 months of age is heartbreaking and inspiring. We follow him from his birth in England to his adventurous voyage on a ship to Australia, being forced to change from left to right handed at school, his painful shyness, young love and heartache, his life as a Policeman, through two marriages and two divorces and even the unusual experience of chasing a burglar in Ireland while naked!
This emotional story is one of love, courage, despair and finally inspiration. Anyone who has suffered through grief or loss will resonate with his touching descriptions of the grieving process and the way in which he handled his emotions. Not just in grief but through the painful shyness of puberty, teenage heartbreak, guilt, depression and finally unconditional love. ‘Do I Have to Cry to Say Goodbye?’ is a coming of age story. A story of saying goodbye to the past and leaving it where it belongs, in the past.
Coping with the death of a child is something no parent should ever have to go through but Kevin doesn’t just get through it he shows you how to be inspired and how to inspire others.
He has travelled the gamut of emotions to find his inspiring mission in life.
As Kevin says in the introduction, ‘Laugh along with me, cry along with me but most importantly be inspired along with me!’
